not think it is anti-have anti-virginian to support the president of the united states. george has made very plain he will not consider a president obama a partner. i will always work with the president of the united states to be a partner. >> that has been one of the least confrontational of the senate races, by the way. republican tommy thompson came loaded for bear in his debate with tammy baldwin. when the topic turned to iran, thompson saw his chance to attack baldwin for receiving donations from a company that opposes sanctions. the problem for tomorrhompson, didn't go quite as planned. take a listen. >> i have no idea what you're talking about but it's ridiculous. >> back to the issue at hand -- >> are you saying you didn't receive money from the council for a living earth? >> council for a living earth? i'm not familiar with the council for a living earth. >> they've been supporting you for ten years. >> i've never heard -- >> it was on the front page of "the milwaukee journal" this morning. >> i'll have to look at that. i've never heard of a council for the living earth. >> what tom
president of the united states, you have to let both people speak. >> romney's worst moment was this one. it was a year ago with rick perry. >> rick, again, i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds and you get 30 seconds to respond. >> obama has done his best to test him on this. both men have been tripped up by looking patronizing to women. aggressive attacks made her less likely to romney and helped turn the race in his favor. the last week of their fight centered on whether romney had taken a sexist tone when accused of accepting an anti-abortion group's endorsement. >> i did not in any way acknowledge their endorsement. >> you accepted it. >> in what way did i accept it? >> ask your campaign spokesman. >> i don't have one here tonight. i'm here now. i do not take the position of a pro-life candidate. i'm in favor of preserving and protecting a woman's right to choose and your effort to try and create fear and deception here is unbecoming. >> o'brien said romney would not have used that word to describe a man
it to see can these guys become president of the united states? >> this stuff is always anecdotal. it's like sports. people have an opinion out of these debates. i think about it more as this month. these few weeks, the debate phase of the campaign. up until now, the entire campaign is about tv ads, surrogates arguing on televis n television, media pundits providing the analysis. and what was striking about last week's debate between governor romney and president obama, first time 90 minutes unfiltered, these two men going face to face, challenging one another. that's what this is about. it's just about suddenly we get to see the two leaders, in this case, the two vps. >> sort of philosophical. just part two of this philosophical debate. >> correct. it's the only moment in the campaign. last week 70 million viewers. this week, who knows how many we'll have. it's the first time in the debate we have tens of millions of people sending out their agendas and holding one another to account. >> martha raddatz has already promised it, says it's going to alternate back and forth. this is the most i
, writing, our country faces a momentous choice. the fact is the united states is on an unsustainable course. at stake is nothing less than our position in the world. our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms. that is why i'm endorsing mitt romney for president. look, don't ignore this endorsement. ross perot is associated with one issue, the deficit. three states is where this -- where the deficit issue animates the most, virginia, colorado, iowa. iowa has the oldest population, therefore, the longest memory of per row. you sort of can connect the dots there. only a few other endorsements that carry credibility like per rose, colin powell, michael bloomberg, joe lieberman, those types of folks. one to watch. don't ignore it. finally through a debate that will tackle foreign and domestic issues you can the security lapses is sure to come up and libia. traveling in peru, secretary of state hillary clinton did a series of issues and claimed full responsibility for bengh i benghazi. >> i am in charge of the state department, 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 post.
, as you heard from the president, he's the one who asks, as the president of the united states, asks these diplomats to go into harm's way, to be engaged at a time when we need to be engaged in a dangerous part of the world. nobody feels more responsibility for their safety than he does. >> is he outraged that his ambassador to the united nations went out there with false information? >> let's be clear, susan rice -- >> is he now -- >> i think what is important is that the best information that we had at the time in which we had it. nobody went out there and did anything to mislead this country. >> so are we -- >> and as the president said, republican attempts to politicize this issue have been and continue to be offensive. look, i think it was the strongest answer of the night and it's clear what secretary clinton has outlined with the ambassador is to know what happened -- let me answer this question. because this is important. what happened in benghazi, what happened leading up to benghazi. this is a strong answer for the president and it demonstrated one more time mitt romney's r
of the united states, i applaud co colin for standing with him. >> race-based endorsement and sununu issued this "colin powell is a friend and i respect the endorsement decision he made and i do not doubt that it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies." he didn't deal with that and seemed to claim that wasn't the question. imagine if the other side had alleged if ross perot made his endorsement of mitt romney solely because mitt romney was white. anyway, the president has his own set of problems to deal with. brian williams asked the president whether he was happy with the intelligence he received as the benghazi attack was unfolding and with what he was able to learn in its aftermath. here's how the president responded. >> we'll do a full investigation. obviously when four americans are killed, you know, you have to do some soul searching in terms of making sure that all our systems are where they need to be. >> and then there was this little kerfuffle, in an interview in "rolling stone" he joked he does well in the 6 to 12-year-old demographic set and he added,

important debate of the campaign. >> et it together. >> get it together. you're the president of the united states. you have all the resources to draw on. he's been in nevada preparing for it. and then he showed up, or didn't show up, depending on your point of view, and was inadequate. it seemed if he had shown up for a morning briefing at the white house in july of this year on a thursday, he would have been more engaged than he was last night. >> you were with the jefferson county voters. how do you think they reacted to the debate? >> well, my guess is they got a lot of detail, which is what they are looking for from romney. and the two business owners. one was in commercial real estate. therm leaning in that direction. i wouldn't be surprised if they moved that way. with the support that exists for both candidates is still kind of soft. >> softer than people realize. tom brokaw, we'll see you. maybe danville. with round one done, the political panel joins me here in denver for a look at where the race goes. soup of the day. today we need chicken noodle. . check out the facebook page fo
